Gary J. Bass to Speak About his Winning Book at a Free Public Event in
TORONTO AND WASHINGTON, March 31, 2014 /CNW/ - Patricia Rubin, President
of the Lionel Gelber Prize Board and niece of Lionel Gelber, today
announced that this year's is Gary J. Bass for The Blood Telegram: Nixon, Kissinger, and a Forgotten Genocide, published by Alfred A. Knopf.
Jury Chair William Thorsell remarked: "Gary Bass draws a brilliant
portrait of the tragic birth of Bangladesh. He produces shocking
revelations about the role of Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger in
backing Pakistan's genocidal suppression of democracy in Bangladesh,
even as American diplomats on the ground described the horrors around
them. This is an epic tale told with verve and authority about war and
diplomacy in toxic embrace."
Gary J. Bass will speak at the Munk School of Global Affairs, at the
University of Toronto, on Thursday, April 24th.
